Nestled in between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Florida is a bustling, thriving metropolis and the third largest city in Broward County. The population tops 143,000 people making it a far bigger success than it’s original founder could have envisioned.
Hollywood, Florida was founded by Joseph W. Young in 1925 as an east coast version of Hollywood, California and was originally called “Hollywood by the Sea.” True to Florida’s nature, this thriving city defies comparison and created it’s own identity over the years.
